Righting Our Consent Newsletter

Our great country has its roots in revolution against government without representation.  The people did not consent to most of what they were being subjected to, which amounted to a constant and increasing oppression of freedom and man’s unalienable rights. Eventually they declared their independence from the conditions they found intolerable.  They in effect righted their consent in their governance.

Find out what traditional Americans are doing to right their consent.  Knowing our principles and fighting for them is a duty we cannot afford to ignore with the liberal assault on who we are and what we believe as a country.

Arbitrary Laws Must Not Stand

“’Tis a Mistake to think this Fault [tyranny] is proper only to Monarchies; other Forms of Government are liable to it, as well as that. For where-ever the Power that is put in any hands for the Government of the People, and the Preservation of their Properties, is applied to other ends, and made use of to impoverish, harass, or subdue them to the Arbitrary and Irregular Commands of those that have it: There it presently becomes Tyranny, whether those that thus use it are one or many.” –John Locke

Shortly after riding into office in 2009 on a blank slate, where many a voter had interpreted his vague, albeit exciting sounding platitudes of “hope and change” to be their own hopes and vision of changes, Obama and his collectivist friends “hit the ground running” as he had indicated to his allies he would during his campaign.

Squarely in their target sights was the American health care insurance system, which had been prepped for attack during the campaign as an uncaring, and overly costly system, that was stunting economic growth, failing the people, and in need of major reform.

This was merely a cover lie for the plan to fundamentally change us from a free and consensual government by the people, to a new system of rule over the people by grabbing power from them permanently. Making it appear as if the people were asking for this particular change would be most useful.


The Rule of Men Trumps Liberty


How and Why America’s Productive Will Win

We are under assault by a naturally occurring problem that our Fore Fathers worried about and some unnatural problems by those with an ideology that wishes to permanently destroy what we have in order to rebuild a substitute in its place using human envy to accomplish this.

Our country is founded on liberty and justice.

The Fore Fathers worried about the tendency of a self perpetuating tendency for government institutions to grow and reinforce that growth at the expense of a correlating demise of liberty.

We can see now that their concerns were more than justified.

The pursuit of equality in the name of justice is the lever that has allowed our politicians and judges to pry and wedge away our individual rights and assign meaning or importance to them as only valid if they are collective rights.

In this manner a government has justified the pillage of the individual and use of force to do what it wishes to do in spite of what the consequences to individual rights have been.

We also have those that have always wished to form a society that absolutely rejects any individual freedom and only assigns collective rights based upon what they say they should be.  Those are the unnatural forces that are actively attacking this country now as we speak and currently hold the reins of power.

Their system uses the facade of equality also.  That system depends on controlling all aspects of our society and it depends on the productive to toil for the unproductive.
“To each according to their need, from each according to their ability.”

So how do we “Go Gault” with no secret valley to retreat to?

In a way without realizing it we are already doing so.

The tea party movement sprang up seemingly out of nowhere.  People started to realize that their hard work is not paying off and that our government is going to continue to be irresponsible, redistribute our hard earned property to others and that there is no end in sight.

So how have we gone Gault?

People have taken the time to put their time and money where their heart is and just as importantly decided to use their productivity in a way that the government has not figured out how to steal.
Instead of working overtime to line the feds pockets and take home our meager leftovers after they grab our labor to give to others, we have put our extra time and productivity into working to restore our liberty. We have collectively put in hundreds of millions of hours to do this and we are just getting started.

There are many that have stood on the sidelines and taken a “wait and see” attitude about this movement, and what it means, and if there is any chance for it to be effective.  Guess what- those people are joining us now.

All the major personalities and the most respectable conservative organizations that we normally listen to give us the alternative to the lying media are all getting involved themselves and the politicians too see that this movement cannot be ignored in any way, shape, form, or manner.

What we have is a movement of the productive people in this country that are fed up by being ripped off by the unproductive and being directed by some self-important elites that “know better” than everyone else what is right for us in our lives.

Our productivity has been used against us to supply their power.

When we use our productivity to restore our own power these elitist’s will not stand a chance.

This voluntary productivity cannot be stolen by the government, and it is generated by the individual as a free choice.  We have barely tapped into this resource as of yet.

Once people ask themselves the question of what they personally are prepared to do, what preoccupation is more important to them than their own liberty… watch out!

Don’t get in our way!

Obamacare Public Option

Obamacare Public Option

This article was received via e-mail from Small Business Against Big Government.

Last week I attended a luncheon with some other small business people to hear the Arizona State Treasurer address Arizona’s private and public economic status.  The Treasurer pulled no punches. The state legislature is deadlocked over the budget and barring either immediate spending cuts or an immediate tax increase the state is 30-60 days away from being out of money.

Arizonians were sold a bill of goods involving the big tobacco settlement from 1998, remember that?

By the next election cycle Proposition 204 sealed their fate- as what was sold- was not what was written in the bill, just as the Obama administration is doing now.

This is an excellent article that clearly lays out what awaits America with the Trojan Horse called the Public Option!

Anatomy of a Trojan Horse

If you think by some miracle that Obamacare actually has a chance of bringing any of the improvements promised, take a look at reality, than get out there and help stop this before it is too late!

Obamacare murders patient choice regardless of name they use

The month of August 2009 is a critical one to the American people.
Regardless of Pelosi or Obamas rhetoric about who the villain is in stopping them, the American people need to step up our opposition while the legislators grace us with their presence!
Regardless of the name they apply to their “plan” it is going to mean economic disaster and long term misery  to Americans.

I have reprinted Senator Demint’s email below from the Senate Conservative Fund

Co-ops = Public Option = Single Payer

Knowing that Americans would reject the idea of a “single payer” government health care system, Democrats began calling their plan a “public option.” Now that Americans have rejected that idea too, Democrats are peddling another proposal called health care “cooperatives.”

Unfortunately, these federally-backed co-ops are nothing more than a public option by another name. Washington will set up and subsidize them so private health plans are squeezed out of the marketplace. Then, like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the costs will catch up with these government-sponsored entities and Congress will tell us they are “too big to fail” and must be nationalized.

Some Democrats are willing to admit that co-ops are the same as a public option. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said earlier this month that, “We’re going to have some type of public option, call it ‘co-op,’ call it what you want.”

Some Democrats are also willing to admit that the public option is the same as a single payer system. Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) said this week that, “I think if we get a good public option it could lead to single payer, and that’s the best way to reach single payer.”

It’s becoming clear that no matter what name Democrats put on it, all of their ideas lead to a government takeover of our health care.

The latest government bailout

This week, the Senate moved beyond bailing out industries that it has driven into the ground to bailing out its own programs that it has failed to manage.

Proving once again that the federal government is incapable of managing the federal highway system, the Senate passed $7 billion to shore up the failing program. The bill also provides $7.5 billion to bail out the failing unemployment insurance program and $185 billion to bail out several government-managed home-ownership programs.

Only 17 Republicans had the courage to vote against this rip-off. Click here to see how your Senators voted.

Question: If the government cannot manage these programs, what makes anyone think it can manage our health care?

Just citizens fighting the Goliath sized government with their bare hands. We need every body available! If you absolutely cannot make it, please fax your letter or call during that same time period.

Keep in mind that we are the only ones fighting the massive army of Organizing for America (Obama’s activists from the campaign), who are currently working day and night to support a government run health care system. Check out their event search page to see how many events they are planning in your neighborhood! There are a lot, and that means we need to fight harder!!

Never stop fighting.

In liberty,

Liberty Belle
